Does Chelsea Stand any Chance Against PSG in their Champions League Last 16 Fixture come Febraury 2016

 By Samuel Aniekan For EddySam Educators

The draws for the 2015/2016 Champions League round of 16 fixtures has been made & for the 3rd straight season running Chelsea FC has been paired against PSG. On paper and based on current form, & the caliber of players possess by both sides, this looks like mission impossible for Chelsea. It looks as if PSG are already through to the quarter -finals of the competition. As we speak fans of PSG may actually be celebrating because they have actually be drawn with one of the teams which every other team would have loved to be paired with according to Mourinho. So this is like a dream drawn to the average PSG fan.

Both teams are actually champions of their respective leagues with contrasting fortunes in the current campaign while PSG the French champions sit on top of the French league & are unbeaten in 18 league matches and won 15 of those 18 matches scoring 45 goals in the process & conceding just 9. They also only conceded one goal in the group stages of this years champions league competition as they finished runners-up to Real-Madrid. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea sit one point above the relegation zone in the 16th position after 16 matches having amassed just 15 points scoring 17 goals & conceding 24 goals.

It's not looking good at all for Chelsea FC at the moment but if PSG become complacent & over-confident & feel that they have already won the tie without kicking a ball then they may end up having themselves to blame come February 2016 because fortunes reversal can occur within a moment's notice & according to Tyson Fury " you don't have to be the best at an event for you to win. February may just be the period when Chelsea gets into their stride while PSG may suffer a blip in form.

Over the two legs a combination of tactics, belief, form, luck & destiny are going to play a key role in deciding the outcome. We know the champions league can be full of surprises.The Chelsea team that won the UCL a few years ago was actually one of the weakest Chelsea team who were never given any chance but luck was really on their side & it was their destiny to win the trophy that year. So if it is actually Chelsea's destiny to defeat PSG come February 2016 it is going to happen.

So PSG current good form may actually mean nothing come February 2016 if they are not in shape,  when the Champions League match is played against Chelsea.
